Blendedrail gets boost


Feds could shift funds to Peninsula,Southern California for high-speed rail
By Bill Silverfarb
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Constructing a high-speed rail system in the Central Valley with nowhere for the trains to go is pointless unless the California HighSpeed Rail Authority shifts some funds into the systems two end points in San Francisco and Los Angeles, according to the rail authoritys Peer Review Group.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has also indicated it may be willing to consider a request by the state to reprogram some of the billions committed to the Central Valley section of the project to the systems two end points, according to a letter from Will Kempton, chair of the California High-Speed Rail Peer Review Group to state Sen. Joe Simitian,

D-Palo Alto, dated Aug. 22. The Peer Review Group has offered near full support for a blended rail proposal for the Peninsula that would limit high-speed trains to essentially Caltrains current rightof-way, minimizing property takings and greatly reducing the cost of the project. Simitian, Assemblyman Rich Gordon,

D-Menlo Park, and U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, DPalo Alto, introduced the blended rail proposal back in April. There is momentum behind the idea, Gordon said yesterday. It is a practical approach, cost effective and responsive to local communities. Shifting the funds out of the Central Valley

San Bruno would like to have its full-time police chief back and is leaving Millbrae to evaluate if police services should be provided through a city department or by contracting with another agency. San Bruno has requested to have Police Chief Neil Telford return as a full-time employee of the city rather than splitting his time with Millbrae in the same role. As a result, Millbrae must decide if it will maintain its own department or explore contracting with the San Mateo County Sheriffs Ofce for services. On Tuesday, the council will hold a special meeting to discuss the options. Keeping its own department would cost an additional $400,000, which would need to be cut from other city departments. Alternatively, the city could look at contracting services with the Sheriffs Ofce. Mayor Dan Quigg wished the situation was different. But, we need to look at options, he said, adding he was curious to hear the publics input at tonights meeting.

Strange but True


Golfer mistaken for clown charged with DWI
BATAVIA, N.Y. A Massachusetts man whose colorful golf attire was briey mistaken for a clown outt has been charged in New York with driving a golf cart while drunk. The Genesee County sheriff says they got a report that someone dressed as a clown was operating a stolen golf cart in the western New York town of Batavia on Sunday night. Deputies found 37year-old James Straub, of Stoneham, Mass., driving along a road. He wasnt dressed as a clown just wearing some colorful clothing after an outing at Terry Hills Golf Course. But deputies say he was intoxicated. Straub pleaded not guilty in town court to a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated and a lesser charge of refusing to take a breath test. He didnt have a lawyer at his initial appearance. Police say that since this is a second offense, the theft charge will be considered a more serious second-degree misdemeanor. There was not a listed telephone number for Donald Noone in Carlisle. she just pregnant? National Marine Fisheries Service spokesman Brian Gorman said his agency was investigating a report that the whale had been hit by a private boat Friday. However, senior scientist Ken Balcomb of the Center for Whale Research in Friday Harbor says he carefully looked over the 18-year-old female whale and saw no evidence of any new injury. He also says shes been acting mopey for days actually much of the summer. He thinks its possible shes pregnant and soon to give birth.

Assembly sends commutation limits bill to Brown


SACRAMENTO The California Assembly unanimously approved a bill Monday to slow down the governors ability to grant clemency to convicted criminals. The measure came in response to a controversial decision by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to reduce the sentence of a political allys son just hours before leaving ofce. If signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, AB648 by Democratic Assemblyman Marty Block of San Diego would require the governor to give at least 10 days of notice to the district attorney in the jurisdiction where the crime occurred before acting on an application for clemency. The district attorney would have to make reasonable efforts to notify any victims of the crime, who would have time to petition against a sentence reduction. The measure was approved by the Assembly with a 60-0 vote. The Senate approved it 34-0 last week after reducing the advance notice from 30 days to 10 days.

Former prosecutor backs ending state death penalty

ballot that would replace capital punishment with life prison terms. The death penalty in California is broken and it is unxable, Gil Garcetti said at a news conference held to release details of the proposed ballot measure. It is more likely that

the convicted murderer will die in prison before execution is imposed. A recent study estimated the state spends $184 million annually on death penalty cases and incarceration above what it would cost to convert the terms to life behind bars.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Police have arrested a few demonstrators inside a Bay Area Rapid Transit station who were among a group of about 75 protesters marching from station to station in the citys downtown. Still, the evening transit commute in San Francisco was running smoothly. Acknowledging that disruptive protests have recently angered com-

San Mateo resident Adrian Flores, 39, was killed Friday in a car crash on Interstate 5 in Colusa County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

around before rolling from the northbound lane of the interstate, through the center divider and into the path of another vehicle traveling in the southbound lane, according to the CHP. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the collision, according to the CHP. The younger Flores was ejected from the vehicle and landed in the southbound lanes. He was apparently not wearing a seat belt, according to the CHP. He was airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where he is reported Monday to be in critical, but stable condition, according to the CHP.

ARGUMENTS SCHEDULED: The California Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Perry v. Brown (formerly entitled Perry v. Schwarzenegger), S189476, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011, in the Supreme Court Courtroom, Earl Warren Building, 350 McAllister St., San Francisco. The case is widely regarded as a landmark case that will likely reach the U.S. Supreme Court. CASE HISTORY: Perry v. Brown is a federal lawsuit led in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California challenging the federal constitutionality of Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot initiative that amended the California Constitution to provide that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. On Aug. 4, 2010, Chief Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that Proposition 8 violated the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. On Aug. 16, 2010, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the judgment stayed pending appeal. HERES THE QUESTION NOW: If California government agencies and ofcials decline to pursue an appeal of Judge Walkers decision, do the proponents of Proposition 8 have legal standing* to defend the measure? As stated by the Ninth Circuit, the standing issue is as follows: Whether under Article II, Section 8 of the California Constitution, or otherwise under California law, the ofcial proponents of an initiative measure possess either a particularized interest in the initiatives validity or the authority to assert the States interest in the initiatives validity, which would enable them to defend the constitutionality of the initiative upon its adoption or appeal a judg-

Irene likely to lead to higher premiums


ment invalidating the initiative, when the public ofcials charged with that duty refuse to do so. WHO WILL DECIDE: In January 2011, the federal court requested the state Supreme Court to review the standing issue. After considering the matter, the Supreme Court agreed to do so and will hear the arguments Sept. 6. WANT TO WATCH? Due to widespread public interest in the Perry case, the Supreme Court has approved a live statewide television broadcast of oral arguments on the California Channel, www.calchannel.com, a statewide public affairs network. The court also will provide an overow viewing area for the public and press in the Milton Marks Conference Center Auditorium, located on the lower level of the Hiram Johnson State Ofce Building, 455 Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco. A limited number of seats for public and press will be available in the courtroom. *LEGALESE: Standing: the ability of a party to demonstrate to the court sufcient connection to and harm from the law or action challenged to support that partys participation in the case. Justice should not only be done, but should manifestly and undoubtedly be seen to be done. Lord Hewart (1924).

WASHINGTON The $7 billion in estimated losses from Hurricane Irene will compound the vast damage caused by weather in the United States this year. Yet despite billions theyve paid out for oods, tornadoes and earthquakes, big insurance companies can expect another protable year. And their customers can expect higher premiums. The stocks of major insurers shot up on Monday as investors celebrated Irenes less-than-expected damage. The storm didnt even cause most analysts to adjust their prot estimates for insurers. In part, thats because insurance companies have been raising premiums this year, especially for cus-

tomers in high-risk areas. Homeowner and auto policies cost 5 to 10 percent more than they did a year ago, according to research by Gregory Locraft, an analyst with Morgan Stanley. The damage from Irene and other disasters means that property insurance premiums will likely rise across the board into 2012, Locraft said. Irene is just another log on the re, he said. The storm seems unlikely to hurt the overall U.S. economy. Analysts agree that damage from Irene will likely run less than $10 billion a tiny fraction of the $14 trillion U.S. economy. Reconstruction might even strengthen areas hit hard by Irene, analysts said. Rebuilding homes, repairing cars and xing streets and bridges should help boost those

local economies late this year and early next year, they said. Irene is the 10th U.S. weather disaster this year to have caused more than $1 billion in damage, the National Weather Service says the most for any year on record dating back 30 years. And 2011 is hardly over. Excluding Irene, this years natural catastrophes had caused about $18 billion in damage to insured properties, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Irene will add $3 billion to $5 billion, said Robert Hartwig, an economist and president of the group. In a normal year, industry losses typically total $15 billion to $20 billion, said Robert Litan, an industry expert and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank. And the peak hurricane season is only about half over.

Obama taps labor economist for top adviser


By Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Facing a public deeply dissatised with his handling of the economy, President Barack Obama on Monday tapped a prominent labor economist to join his cadre of advisers and help steer a fall jobs agenda that will be critical to the presidents re-election bid. In nominating Alan Krueger as chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Obama gains an economist with expertise in the labor market and unemployment, a key drag on the U.S. economy and Obamas presidency. Krueger, a former Treasury Department ofcial and Princeton University economist,

Alan Krueger

has advocated for hiring tax credits for businesses and increased government spending on infrastructure, two p r o g r a m s Obama aides are considering pro-

posing this fall. His appointment also caps a wholesale makeover of Obamas economic leadership team during the past year. Several high-ranking advisers, including Lawrence Summers, Christina Romer and Austan Goolsbee, have all left the administration, leaving Treasury

Secretary Timothy Geithner as the only top ofcial remaining from the presidents original economic team. Obama has often reached within his administrations ranks to fill vacant posts on the economic team, and Krueger is no exception. Though he spent last year at Princeton, he served as assistant secretary for economic policy at the Treasury Department during the rst two years of Obamas administration. Gregory Mankiw, a former CEA chairman under President George W. Bush and long-time acquaintance of Krueger, said Obamas new nominee has a reputation as an analytic, data-driven economist, not as a champion for many specic policy initiatives.

Irenes toll jumps to 38;Towns battle floods


By Wilson Ring and Jennifer Peltz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MONTPELIER, Vt The full measure of Hurricane Irenes fury came into focus Monday as the death toll jumped to 38, New England towns battled epic oods and millions faced the dispiriting prospect of several days without electricity. From North Carolina to Maine, communities cleaned up and took stock of the uneven and hard-to-predict costs of a storm that spared the nations biggest city a nightmare scenario, only to deliver a historic wallop to towns well inland. In New York City, where people had braced for a disaster-movie scene of water swirling around skyscrapers, the subways and buses were up and running again in time for the Monday morning commute. And to the surprise of many New Yorkers, things went pretty smoothly. But in New England, landlocked Vermont contended with what its governor called the worst ooding in a century. Streams also raged out of control in upstate New York. In many cases, the moment of maximum danger arrived well after the storm had passed, as rainwater made its way into rivers and streams and turned them into torrents. Irene dumped up to 11 inches of rain on Vermont and more than 13 in parts of New York. We were expecting heavy rains, said Bobbi-Jean Jeun of Clarksville, a hamlet near Albany, N.Y. We were expecting ooding. We werent expecting devastation. It looks like somebody set a bomb off. Meanwhile, the 11-state death toll, which had stood at 21 as of Sunday night, rose sharply as bodies were pulled from oodwaters and people were electrocuted by downed power lines. The tally of Irenes destruction mounted, too. An apparently vacant home exploded in an evacuated, ooded area in Pompton Lakes, N.J., early Monday, and reghters had to bat-

tle the ames from a boat. In the Albany, N.Y., suburb of Guilderland, police rescued two people Monday after their car was swept away. Rescuers found them three hours later, clinging to trees along the swollen creek. Its going to take time to recover from a storm of this magnitude, President Barack Obama warned as he promised the government would do everything in its power to help people get back on their feet. For many people, the aftermath could prove more painful than the storm itself. In North Carolina, where Irene blew ashore along the Outer Banks on Saturday before heading for New York and New England, 1,000 people were still in emergency shelters, awaiting word on their homes. At the same time, nearly 5 million homes and businesses in a dozen states were still without electricity, and utilities warned it might be a week or more before some people got their power back. Once the refrigerator gets warm, my insulin goes bad. I could go into diabetic shock. Its kind of scary because we dont REUTERS know how long its going to be out for, said A car passes a section of Route 112 that was washed out during Hurricane Irene in Halifax,Vt. Patricia Dillon, a partially paralyzed resident of a home for the disabled in Milford, Conn., where the electricity was out and a generator failed. Her voice cracking, she added: Im very tired, stressed out, aggravated, scared. Russ Furlong of Barrington, R.I., ruefully remembered the two weeks he went without power after Hurricane Bob 20 years ago. Hopefully, we wont have to wait that long this time, he said. Last night we had candles. It was romantic. It was fun. But that feeling doesnt last too long. Up and down the Eastern Seaboard, commuters and vacationers found their travel plans scrambled. Airlines warned it would be days before the thousands of passengers stranded by Irene nd their way home. Some Amtrak service in the Northeast was suspended. Commuter trains between New Jersey and New York City were not running.

Even Trusted Publications Can Get the Facts Wrong


By Paul Larson
MILLBRAE Always take what you read with a grain of salt! It amazes me that so many articles I see being published in various magazines, tabloids, journals, etc. are implied to be factual and researched but in reality end up being riddled with partial truths, inaccuracies and falsehoods! I always like information that is backed up by provable facts, but am leery of articles that are hastily written and not checked out. Many people assume that all their reading material has been pre-verified by an editor. Accepting these erroneous types of writings as the gospel truth causes confusion among the public and can be potentially harmful! One serious example is the daily flooding of email stories that are passed from reader to reader (weve all received them) and taken by many recipients as factual writings. The majority of these emails, such as perceived parents searching for their missing child; hearsay about the Presidents status as an American citizen; rumors on the latest medical scare or remedy; handy household uses for cola; Bill Gates sharing his fortune with you if you forward that email to 10 friends; in addition to countless other stories are all found to be internet myths or hoaxes. TIP: You can easily check out the validity of every email story you receive by going to www.snopes.com and typing in the subject of any questionable email in the search box. In another example, I was recently given an article to review from Readers Digest called 13 Things the Funeral Director Wont Tell You as part of their series featuring different professions. Being an actual Funeral Director, and knowing the facts, I couldnt believe the inexplicable info I was reading in a supposedly reputable magazine such as Readers Digest. It was obvious to me that the author of the article and the editor of the magazine not only didnt check their alleged facts, but some of the items listed were misleading, incomplete assertions or just plain folklore! Anyone reading this would just assume that all was checked out in advance with experts and professionals before being printedbut in this case it was a listing of partial truths or unexplained hearsay. Since this article appeared (in the June/July 2011 issue) the National Funeral Directors Association among other groups have chastised Readers Digest for their inept reporting. This circumstance makes it difficult for me to fully have faith in Readers Digest and reminds me that fallacies that can show up in otherwise trusted publications. Another situation similar to the above appeared a while back in AARP magazine. I always viewed this publication as having a stellar reputation until I read an article about funeral rip-offs that was also filled with inaccurate statements. In that case AARP was not checking their facts either. The point is that some authors may have part of their facts correct or incorrectbut until you verify your reading material with a professional you should take what you read with some good humor and a grain of salt. If you ever wish to discuss cremation, funeral matters or want to make preplanning arrangements please feel free to call me and my staff at the CHAPEL OF THE HIGHLANDS in Millbrae at (650) 588-5116 and we will be happy to guide you in a fair and helpful manner.

Consumer spending rebounds


By Martin Crutsinger
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Consumer spending grew in July by 0.8 percent, the largest amount in five months. That followed a decline in June and helped ease fears that the U.S. economy is on the verge of another recession. Americans bought more cars and spent more last month to cool their homes during a heat wave. Personal incomes increased 0.3 percent last month, the Commerce Department said. Thats slightly higher than the modest 0.2 percent in June, the weakest growth in seven months. The first look at spending in the second half of the year helped give Wall Street a lift. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 155 points in late-morning trading. The rise in spending added to positive reports that

Hurricane Irene didnt do as much damage as feared. Economists said the spending report was a strong sign that the economy rebounded in July after growing at an annual rate of just 0.7 percent in the first half of the year the slowest pace since the recession officially ended two years ago. Consumer spending is important because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. Julys spending and income figures significantly alter the outlook for third-quarter GDP growth, said Paul Dales, a senior U.S. economist for Capital Economics. Dales said growth for the July-September quarter is on track for an annual rate of 2.5 percent, up from his previous estimate of 1.5 percent. Dales noted that the report measured spending ahead of a sell-off on Wall

Street in late July and early August, which may force consumers and business to pull back on spending and investment. The stock market has lost 11 percent of its value since July 21. But even if the early August data are weak, talk of another recession would seem strange when the economy appears to be growing more strongly, Dales said. The economy added 117,000 net jobs in July, twice the number added in each of the previous two months. Spending on retail goods rose faster last month than in any month since March. U.S. automakers rebounded last month to boost factory production by the most since the Japan crisis. In July, consumer spending rose at a faster pace than income. That means Americans saved less. The savings rate fell to a four-month low of 5 percent, down from 5.5 percent in June.

NASA: Space station may be evacuated by late Nov.


By Marcia Dunn
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Astronauts may need to take the unprecedented step of temporarily abandoning the International Space Station if last weeks Russian launch accident prevents new crews from ying there this fall. Until ofcials gure out what went wrong with Russias essential Soyuz

rockets, there will be no way to launch any more astronauts before the current residents have to leave in midNovember. The unsettling predicament comes just weeks after NASAs nal space shuttle ight. We have plenty of options, NASAs space station program manager, Mike Suffredini, assured reporters Monday. Well focus on crew safety as we always do. Abandoning the space station, even

for a short period, would be an unpleasant last resort for the worlds ve space agencies that have spent decades working on the project. Astronauts have been living aboard the space station since 2000, and the goal is to keep it going until 2020. Suffredini said ight controllers could keep a deserted space station operating indenitely, as long as all major systems are working properly. The risk to the station goes up, however, if no one is on board to x equipment breakdowns.

TRIPOLI, Libya Moammar Gadhas wife and three of his children ed Libya to neighboring Algeria on Monday, rm evidence that the longtime leader has lost his grip on the country. Gadhas whereabouts were still unknown and rebels are worried that if he remains in Libya, it will stoke more violence. In Washington, the Obama administration said it has no indication Gadha has left the country. Rebels also said one of Gadhas other sons, elite military commander Khamis, was probably killed in battle. The Algerian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Gadhas wife Saa, his sons Hannibal and Mohammed, and his daughter Aisha entered the country across the land border. It said Algerian authorities have informed the United Nations Secretary General, the president of the U.N. Security Council, and the head of the Libyan rebels transitional leadership council. Ahmed Jibril, an aide to rebel National Transitional Council head Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said ofcials would demand that Algerian authorities hand them over to Libya to be tried before Libyan courts. Gadhas children played important roles in Libyas military and economic life. Hannibal headed the maritime transport company; Mohammed the national Olympic committee. Aisha, a lawyer, helped in the defense of toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the trial that led to his hanging.

Letters to the editor


Thanks for happy endings
Editor, I read Michelle Durands front-page article, Happy ending to dragon tale in the Aug. 29 edition of the Daily Journal. Some of the ofcers involved in arresting the woman who mortally stabbed Speedy (a pet bearded dragon) went to the trouble of obtaining a new baby lizard for Speedys owner. That story made my day. Kudos to the San Mateo County Sheriffs Ofce deputies who went above and beyond the call of duty to try to ease the pain of the human victim. And thank you to Ms. Durand and the Daily Journal for sharing the story with your readers. attack planners too. The construction was what is called curtain wall and as I recall, the architects were from San Francisco. This was also featured in the movie The Towering Inferno. Because the buildings were built by the New York Port Authority, local building codes were bypassed, which meant the buildings did not have sprinkler systems except on a few oors where tenants had them installed. The outer shell of the curtain did not support any of the buildings weight. It was all carried on a shaft at the center of the building. The re melted the supports allowing a oor to pancake down on the one below. Then that additional weight collapsed more oors until there was nothing left. and everywhere else. Renerys are bad because they produce tons of air pollution. Why do we need so many buildings? Why do we litter when there arent any good reasons for doing it? Once, I saw a huge, fancy hotel on the beach in Kaui, and it ruined a beautiful landscape. While we are living on this Earth, shouldnt we make it beautiful, clean and a better place for everyone and everything?

No Nom Nom for me


ll admit it. Nom Nom was a big lure. Maybe not the only one. Maybe not even the rst. But certainly a big hook for checking out San Mateo Countys latest foray into food truck meet ups was the chance to check out the quasifamous Nom Nom Truck. Nom Nom is coming, was a common refrain last week. I dont know if youve heard, but Nom Nom will be there! Finally, Nom Nom!, all uttered with anticipation. Even one city ofcial who thought he was giving me a news tip mentioned Nom Nom, conceding he had no clue who or what either a Nom Non or a banh mi even was. But he knew people cared and he knew they would be outside the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos Wednesday afternoon. By all appearances last week, everybody else was there, too, and wanted particularly to see if the celebrity food truck featured on the Food Network show The Great Food Truck Race last season was really worth its weight in baguettes and pickled veggies. Maybe Id even learn what the heck Nom Nom means. Mostly, it was all about the banh mi. I know it sounds fauxtrendy but I was intrigued by the idea of the Vietnamese sandwiches since watching the show. They looked good, the ingredients sounded delicious and the truck experience made more accessible a cuisine I rarely seek out otherwise. Truthfully, I didnt need Nom Nom to try a banh mi but its presence in San Carlos backyard gave me a good excuse to shelve the frozen lunch option one more day and head out for a culinary adventure. Id actually cut my teeth on Fly Me To The Food! the previous week with a co-worker, pre-Nom Nom and pre-media blitz. That said, there was still a solid crowd lling tables and chairs assembled in front of the museum. That particular day was a tough choice. A hamburger at Whisk on Wheels? A spicy beef empanada at Mamas Empanadas? Lasagna or panini at Speedy Panini? Biting the bullet and opening the wallet a bit wider for a lobster roll at the Shackmobile just to see if they are as delicious as the offering at the land-locked Old Port Lobster Shack in Redwood City? Id bet good money on lobster rolls and I do love an empanada but in the end an Italian sandwich called my name. Unfortunately, the prosciutto and g option at Speedy Panini we both eyeballed was sold out so we instead each split a meatball (mm, meatballs!) and chicken and mushroom panini. Buying fancier fare at a gloried roach coach is a bit weird at rst. My parameters for truck food is typically in line with my thoughts when I go to certain countries hole in the wall, slightly questionable and nothing like the standards Id demand back in the United States. Panna cotta and gnocchi just arent what I imagine as the typical truck menu. But thank goodness for the atypical. The food may have been better simply by needing to order up at a window, grabbing some goods in a paper tray and staking a space in the great outdoors. Ofce workers in khakis and button downs rubbed shoulders with soccer moms, retirees who crowded around daily special postings alongside teens and everywhere parking was at a premium. It was part county fair, part picnic and several parts yum. How could we not return the following week, particularly after the news urry about Nom Nom? Unfortunately for us although fortunately for the truck the line at Nom Nom was so long youd think they were giving out free gasoline and meet-and-greets with Justin Bieber alongside the food. The other vendors holding court there certainly had customers but nothing comparable to the snake of people so far in the distance those in the back couldnt have seen the menu clearly. Amazing what a little word of mouth and a strong dose of social media can do. Being saddled with a strong streak of impatience and a desk of work hanging over my head, I opted for Naked Chorizo instead and was quite glad to do so. Chorizo tacos on baby corn tortillas, drizzled with cilantro dressing and dotted with queso fresco delicious! Not waiting an hour to eat priceless! Id discovered the beauty of a multi-truck event: If one truck sells out or is unable to accommodate, there are likely several plans B, C or D. Grazing is another selling point. My tacos were accented by trying anothers panini the prosciutto and g was available this time and a black olive stolen from anothers empanada. And dont worry Shackmobile and Whisk; Ive got my eye on you for next time. Its a ne line, getting frustrated over food lines that are anything but. Crowds might keep me from my banh mi but they keep the trucks in business. That said, Ill be back if not this week then next. Im determined to try all the trucks, not just those whove had their 15 minutes on television. Heres just hoping the next wait is, dare I say it, nominal.

A historical perspective
Editor, Regarding Steve Howards letter, Spend, spend, spend. Really? in the Aug. 13-14 edition of the Daily Journal, columnist Keith Kreitman may be old and smart but he is obviously not old enough to remember that George W. Bush did not introduce the spend, spend, spend philosophy. It was not President George W. Bush who instigated the disastrous spend, spend, spend policy. It was President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s whose motto was, Tax, tax, tax. Spend, spend, spend. Elect, elect, elect. This motto was attributed to Harry L. Hopkins, Roosevelts closest adviser who was also a strong supporter of aid to the Soviet Union. Mr. Howard is absolutely correct that the incentive to spend and not to save was the direct cause of this countrys present nancial problems. Reducing the interest rate for borrowed money below the historical ination rate by the Federal Reserve may have increased consumer spending but was a disaster for the long-term economy. Alan Greenspan, chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1987 to 2006, was the instigator of the low interest rate policy. He served under four presidents, Republican and Democratic. In his memoir he stated that, No president had ever requested that interest rates should be increased. Low interest rates resulted in an unsustainable economy on borrowed money that attracted workers worldwide, legal and illegal immigrants, disruptions in the market place, stock crashes and housing booms. Low interest rates also exacerbated the governments debt crisis. Jobs for all may never return, especially with technology improving worker productivity. America has gained in the past and has gained again, through the immigration of the most ambitious. Are we now overpopulated?

Response to Patricia Gray


Editor, Patricia Grays letter espousing Sept. 11 conspiracies (What happened on 9/11? in the Aug. 27 edition of the Daily Journal) represented a drop in the level of logic usually seen in Daily Journal writers. She alleges that the World Trade Center buildings were brought down by controlled demolitions instead of planecaused res. Ignoring the impossibility of keeping a conspiracy of the necessary size quiet for so long, then (begin sarcasm) the hijacker pilots, or the government remote controllers as Gray might suggest, deserve kudos by running their planes exactly into the points where the explosives were hidden (end sarcasm). After all, the collapses clearly began where the aircraft hit. Gray is correct in that no building of the type had ever fallen in a re before. She fails to mention that no buildings of that size and type (a steel-framed high-rise) had ever been before hit by high-speed jets carrying almost full loads of jet fuel to accelerate the re. When the Empire State Building was hit by a slower-moving propeller plane in the 1940s, it was with lower octane aviation gas to a concrete (not heat-sensitive steel) supported building. The only way to test Grays hypothesis is to run another plane into a building checked clear of explosives. If Gray had the courage behind her convictions, maybe she could be the pilot.

Denying 9/11
Editor, In response to Patricia Grays letter, What happened on 9/11? in the Aug. 27 edition of the Daily Journal, when the Holocaust deniers lecture the world about their theories of the Jewish conspiracy against the noble Nazis, who deniers say didnt harbor any ill intentions toward non-military population voluntarily gathered in barracks of some camps, it may be rooted in disbelief that humans can commit crimes of this barbarism and scale. When the majority of Muslims, according to numerous polls, hold the United States and Israel responsible for the death of 3,000 Americans on 9/11, it might be explained by the half-truth and plain misinformation constantly blasted at them by the government-controlled media. But when a citizen of the United States, who ran for a congressional seat and who has access to publicly available documents, claims that the tragedy of 9/11 was not caused by 19 Muslims with box cutters, it is mind boggling. I am talking about Patricia Gray of Burlingame. By rejecting the historic facts and reality, she has brought upon herself the fame of 9/11 Denier.

Thats less than the $6 billion the industry paid after Hurricane Isabel struck the region in 2003. The U.S. came more or less unscathed through the hurricane, said Kim Caughey Forrest, equity research analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Group. The cleanup isnt going to cost as much as anticipated. Utilities companies also rose after it became clear their storm-related expenses would be lower than earlier estimates. Duke Energy Corp., which serves customers in the Carolinas, rose 1.1 percent. New Yorks biggest utility company, Consolidated Edison Inc., rose 1.3 percent. The New York Stock Exchange and other major U.S. exchanges opened as usual Monday after making extensive preparations over the weekend. At the NYSE, executives brought in dozens of cots so employees could sleep there to be ready for the opening bell.

SAN FRANCISCO Jonathan Kaplan made it easy for consumers to shoot cheesy home movies when he founded the company behind the Flip Video camcorder. Now, hes hoping to popularize something cheesier and gooier by starting a chain of grilled cheese restaurants that combine fast food with high tech. Kaplans latest creation, The Melt, opens its rst location Tuesday in San Franciscos SoMa neighborhood. Plans are in the works for two more restaurants in San Francisco and one in nearby Palo

Alto by Thanksgiving. With nancial backing from a venture-capital heavyweight, Sequoia Capital, Kaplan hopes to open 25 to 50 restaurants within the next year and about 500 across the country within ve years. No matter how much people like grilled cheese, Kaplans plan is audacious, considering the state of the economy. Still, he believes building this kind of business makes sense, particularly during a time of uncertainty. Economically, its a good time right now because people want comfort food, he says, seated on a stool at one of the bar-height tables at his bright white-andorange-hued eatery. could close by Jan. 31, 2012.

Bearcats hit reset button

Gatorsprogram humming along

On paper, the 2010 season wasnt pretty for the San Mateo football team. The record shows a 2-8 mark, 0-5 in Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division play, eight-straight losses after a couple of impressive wins to start the season and nally, a demotion to the Lake Division. It kind of went downhill, said San Mateo head coach Jeff Scheller, who recalled a season that began with back-to-back wins against Aragon and Carlmont, followed by a fantastic rst-half half against eventual CCS champion Terra Nova. From that point on, injuries devastated the team physically and mentally. Trying to pick up those pieces was really tough, he said. Last years team wasnt as resilient as I thought. When things started to go down, they just put their head down and didnt want to ght back. Part of that was our fault, part of it was the kids not believing in themselves, so, I think it was just one of those years. But dont look at this demotion as a bad thing for San Mateo if anything, 2011 marks an opportunity for the Bearcats to hit the reset button. And if theres anything the PAL has shown over the last few years, the supposed cellar isnt too far from the top. Scheller is hoping the 2011 is the rst step towards that. It wasnt something that we asked for, Scheller said of the demotion. The league felt like we should, so were going to do what they feel is best for the PAL. But, we have a lot of guys that want to prove something. So, this is just another motivating factor San Mateo football is still strong and we can prove that to other people. To be able to start fresh again, to start over, were taking the full opportunity to do that and try to make this program the strongest we can. San Mateo will be strong in 2011, if anything because they will be one of the most experienced teams in the Lake Division, with 16 returning starters. Were ready to reset and go back, Scheller said. Our theme this year is to make sure we stay on top of things, we stay resilient, stay in the alley and thats what we want to do.

When Sacred Heart Prep football coach Peter Lavorato took over the Gators program in 2003, there were roughly 40 kids in the entire program: frosh-soph and junior varsity and varsity. This year, the Gators boast over 100 between three teams (including a freshman team), with 42 on the varsity roster. As the numbers have risen, so have the wins for the Gators, culminating with an 11-2 record and a Central Coast Section Division IV championship last year. A mentor of mine once told me, Once you build a program, you dont worry about winning football games. You worry about building a program and the winning takes care of itself, Lavorato said. Weve had tremendous support from our administration. Theyve really tried to make it so that it (the school and program) would be a good environment so we could try to be more successful. And like most good programs, Lavorato and the Gators usually have someone waiting in the wings to move into a starting role every year. So despite graduating a number of key players from last years CCS title team, the Gators cupboard is far from bare. We run a system (at all three levels). We know the kids, if they come up (to varsity) as juniors, theyll learn the system, Lavorato said, adding the year of learning at the varsity level pays off when those players become seniors. Sacred Heart Prep will be breaking in a new starting quarterback (Jack Larson), as well as a new starting tailback (Tyler McCool), but dont expect too many growing pains. Larson attempted only one pass last year (incomplete) and ran four times for 13 yards. But Lavorato expects Larson to step in and ably run the offense at the outset of the season. Jack was with us all last year, Lavorato said. To me, he was a starter who didnt play. He knows his stuff.

Success comes quickly for Brisbane Warriors


ich Avila, head coach of the Brisbane Warriors basketball club, is not your typical club coach. He is not just a chaperone who rolls the ball out and lets his players do what they want. He holds them accountable and if the players or their parents dont like it, theres the door. Dont get it twisted, however. Avila is not a drill sergeant. He just wants to develop complete players. How else to describe the clubs success? A former Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) coach, Avila created the Warriors Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) club a year ago, which features players from South San Francisco, Pacica, Brisbane and San Francisco. Earlier this month, his fth-grade team captured the National State Games championship in San Diego, going undefeated in the process. We went though it (the tournament) pretty good, Avila said, adding his team was scoring in the 40-point range in every game. Except the championship game. The Warriors managed only 12 points in the title game but the Warriors defense shut down the opposition, holding them to just seven points. Thats right. The nal score of the championship game: 12-7, Brisbane. I really had to coach in that one, Avila said. They were forcing us to take bad shots. Looks like the entire team and their families learned an important lesson: defense wins championships. If they didnt believe it before, the National State Games nal should have driven that point home. It wasnt always the case, Avila said. In a tournament earlier in the year in Modesto, Avila sat down his two best players because they were not giving the defensive effort he required of them. The Warriors lost in the championship game. I decided to pull the plug and sat them for most of the second half. I lost almost on purpose, Avila said. They werent playing the defense I wanted them to play. I took a lot of heat from the parents. I told the parents, If theyre not going to play

defense, they cant play for me. Ah, welcome to the high-pressure world of AAU basketball. A culture in which the only thing more acceptable than winning is for a player to highlight themselves, the team be damned. That Modesto tournament almost caused Avila to pull the plug on the National State Games, deciding only at the last minute to enter the Warriors. I was hearing too many bad-mouth things (about me from parents) behind my back, Avila said. Its a good thing he went through with the tournament because these girls can play. Avila said his starting ve is solid, but it is a trio of players who lead the team: Brittney Cedeno, Jasmine Jimenez and Valerie Avila, the coachs daughter. Avila said Cedeno averaged about 22 points this summer, with Jimenez chipping in 10. Valerie Avila is the teams center and best defender, averaging about six blocks per game. Of the three, however, there is no doubt who the standout is: Cedeno. Avila said the only reason he started the Warriors club was to guarantee he could continue coaching Cedeno. I didnt want to see her leave me, Avila said. I asked her, If I form one (an AAU team), would you stay? She would have played CYO, but she wanted bigger things. Avila said Cedeno average 17 points per game during her fourth-grade year playing CYO and only ramped up production this past summer season. [The team feeds] off this one kid, Avila said of Cedeno. Im going to call it here: this kid is going to play Division I in college. Every place we go, people are in awe of her. Shes as tall as the center in her grade, but she plays [shooting guard]. Just a fantastic player. Shes here for life. Shes had huge offers (to play at other clubs). Her mom gets notes on her car (from opposing coaches). Coaches come up to her (mom) after games (to convince her to send her daughter to them). She tells them, My daughter is committed to coach Rich. Avila said whenever he sees familiar faces from different parts of the Bay Area, they still bring up Cedenos play. Avila said in a tournament in Walnut Creek, the Warriors were facing the host team in the championship game.

49ers left tackle Staley disgustedby line play

SANTA CLARA Veteran left tackle Joe Staley accepted a good chunk of the blame for San Franciscos problems on the offensive line in a 30-7 exhibition loss to Houston on Saturday night. Very disgusted with what we saw on the offensive line, Staley said Monday. Coach challenged us, he challenged us in the meetings to come out and have a really great week of practice and really great game. Weve got to get going. The season is upon us and weve got to play a lot better than that. Staley watched game lm Monday morning and saw again that he and his linemates were repeatedly beaten by the Texans tenacious four-man rush; San Francisco gave up three sacks. Coach Jim Harbaugh on Sunday called for improvement in technique and fundamentals. We were violated at times, Harbaugh said. Staley, a fth-year pro who received a $42 million, six-year contract extension in June 2009 to lead this line for the long term, was eager to get back on the practice eld because he had a bad feeling still lingering from the game. The 49ers nish the preseason Thursday night at San Diego. Staley, for one, is happy to play again right away in a short week after Saturdays embarrassment in front of the home fans at Candlestick Park. The 49ers, coming off a 6-10 season in which they missed the playoffs and failed to post a winning record for the eighth straight year, open the regular season Sept. 11 at home against the defending NFC West champion Seattle Seahawks. Thats less than two weeks to clean up. Staley wouldnt say his unit is behind because of the lockout and missed minicamps and organized team activities, either. He let Connor Barwin blow by him on one sack. No excuses. I got beat, Staley said. We were terrible. Starting quarterback Alex Smith wound up 2 for 6 for 17 yards, just 4 more yards in the air than he lost in two sacks and rookie second-round draft pick Colin Kaepernick wasnt much better. The Texans had 28 rst downs to the 49ers

six, and Houston outgained San Francisco 417-105. Understanding schemes, Staley said, is not the issue. Staley agreed there were problems with blocking technique that led to no protection for the quarterbacks. Were there (in understanding the system). Weve just got to play better, Staley said. All ve guys, we need to play better. Any feedback from the QBs? Weve got to protect, Staley said. Smith was sacked 25 times last season and threw 10 interceptions. Meanwhile Monday, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio still sees plenty of things his defense must improve before the season begins. Linebacker Ahmad Brooks intercepted a pass by Matt Schaub on the rst play of the game Saturday and returned it 13 yards for a touchdown for San Franciscos only points. Schaub made it look easy after that as the 49ers struggled to cover and keep up. I think in some ways were ne, were where we need to be, and other ways were not, Fangio said. Were still obviously behind from a mental standpoint as far as the whole package being implemented just because of the lost time. But we all knew that coming in, so that was just something that we had to accept both as coaches and players. We had to learn the whole package in a timely process and we may never get to the whole package this year because of that. Notes: Wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who has missed a third straight training camp because of a left foot injury, wasnt in uniform but caught some passes from the QBs. Harbaugh hopes he will get back on the eld in an official capacity this week. ... CB Shawntae Spencer, who has been nursing a hamstring injury, was in shoulder pads and on the eld.

Raiders defense a concern


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Indians 2, As 1

ALAMEDA Hue Jackson revitalized the Oakland Raiders offense as coordinator in his rst season with the team. Now that he has been promoted to head coach, Jacksons biggest worry is xing a defense that had been one of the teams strengths. With 10 starters back from a unit that excelled at times last season, the Raiders went into training camp believing their defense would be in good shape even without All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Three exhibition losses later, the Raiders have to be rethinking that presumption. Now Jackson and coordinator Chuck Bresnahan have less than two weeks to solve the problems before the season opener in Denver on Sept. 12. I think its easily xed. I feel comfortable and condent that well get them addressed and taken care of, Jackson said. There were some positive things from last night. Obviously there were some things that we all wish we could do better and I know we need to do better before we start this season. But Im very comfortable and condent. I know the men in that locker room. I know what their goals are, what their aspirations are and were going to go get it done. The defensive performance by the Raiders has been downright offensive so far this preseason, with all three opponents posting at least 400 yards of offense with an average of 438.7 per game. While its only preseason, the

Raiders are last in total defense, last in yards allowed per play at 6.8, and second-to-last in thirddown conversions at 55 percent. Oakland has been unable to find a for Hue Jackson replacement Asomugha, with rookie DeMarcus Van Dyke repeatedly getting picked on for big plays and his backups faring little better. Hes a very resilient young man, Jackson said. He knows and understands that people want to keep throwing the ball on him. He needs to get better, we need to get better and well do so. The run defense, a problem for years for the Raiders, has struggled with missed tackles and missed assignments, but did fare better Sunday with the New Orleans Saints focusing on the pass. There have been major issues each week. Arizona put up 400 yards the rst game, including 290 through the air as the Cardinals won 24-18 on a lastminute comeback. Most of that damage came against reserves as Oaklands rstteam defense played only six plays all game. The past two weeks it hasnt mattered whether starters or reserves were on the eld as the Raiders struggled up and down the roster. San Francisco did its damage on the ground with 239 yards rushing and 402 total yards as the first-team defense struggled to get off the eld against an offense that had not scored a touchdown in its other two preseason games.

Then the worst performance came against Drew Brees and New Orleans, which had 514 total yards, including 388 through the air. From the rst play of the game when Brees beat Van Dyke for a 37-yard gain to Devery Henderson to Joique Bells 60-yard catch and run when he hurdled rookie Chimdi Chekwa and ran through a tackle attempt by Bani Gbadyu, the Saints had their way with a Raiders defense missing Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour and starting cornerback Chris Johnson. We made mistakes, but all of the mistakes are easily correctible, cornerback Stanford Routt said. We still have time. Were 0-3 in the preseason, but were 00 in the regular season. Thats the beauty of it. Weve just to got to keep ghting. Mistakes are going to happen. You want to try to keep them at a minimum, but the beauty of mistakes is theyre easily correctible. There were some bright signs for the Raiders in their third straight preseason loss. Jason Campbell had plenty of time to throw and completed 12 of 17 passes for 150 yards. The running game looked the best it has all preseason with Michael Bush rushing for 32 yards on ve carries and rookie Taiwan Jones showing he has football ability to go with his gamebreaking speed, gaining 81 on 13 rushes, including a 22-yard touchdown run. Derek Hagan, signed more than a week into training camp, might be the steady, veteran presence the Raiders have been lacking at receiver in recent years. He had six catches for 121 yards and a touchdown and appears certain to make the team.

CLEVELAND Carlos Santana homered and David Huff and four relievers combined to limit the Oakland Athletics to ve hits in the Cleveland Indians 2-1 win Monday night. Huff (2-2) gave up three hits over six scoreless innings to win for the rst time in six starts, since beating Minnesota in his season debut on July 18. Chris Perez worked a perfect ninth for his 30th save in 34 chances for Cleveland, which has won three of four. Santana hit his 20th homer to give Cleveland a 2-0 lead in the seventh inning against Brandon McCarthy (7-7), who lost for the second time in nine starts since July 15. It was only the eighth homer allowed by the right-hander and seventh without a runner on base. Cleveland took a 1-0 lead in the sixth. Ezequiel Carrera lined a two-out single to center and scored all the way from rst on a double into the right-eld corner by Kosuke Fukudome. The Athletics broke through in the eighth against relievers Joe Smith and Tony Sipp. Scott Sizemore lined a leadoff double off Smith. Sipp came on and Sizemore stole third. Jemile Weeks followed with an RBI double to get the Athletics within 2-1.

It was the third time this season Chicago has had four or more home runs in one

The right-hander, who hasnt lost since July 28, improved to 2-1 in four career starts against the Giants. San Francisco managed only a two-out double by Andres Torres in the third and Mike Fontenots pinch-hit single with one out in the eighth. That continues to be a big problem for the Giants, who went into August with a two-game lead in the division. Now San Francisco needs a strong nish to avoid missing out on the postseason altogether.

McCool is more of a known quality, having been the Gators starting yback last season. He rushed for 811 yards on just 130 carries, good for 6.24 yards a carry. He also caught 14 passes for a whopping 323 yards, which averaged just over 23 yards a catch. This year, hell get a bulk of handoffs as he lines up behind Larson as a tailback. Teams will not get to just key on McCool, however. Will Morgan and Ryan Gaertner were both starters on defense last year, but are moving over to the offensive side of the ball this season. The biggest surprise so far, Lavorato said, was the emergence of senior running back Daver Reoglu, who is playing his rst-ever season of football. A standout on the tennis team, Lavorato had no idea Reoglu was planning on coming out for football. Daver has been a surprise for us this year, Lavorato said. He had a really good scrimmage against Half Moon Bay. No matter how good the skill players are, however, they are at the mercy of the offensive line. Fortunately for the Gators, Lavorato believes the Oline (along with the defensive line) is one of the teams strengths. Leo Koloamatangi and Nic Kawasaki will anchor the interior of the offensive line, but look for a rotation of a trio of

tight ends to help out the blocking assignments when theyre not out in pass patterns. Lavorato said he returns the four defensive linemen who started against Carmel in the CCS DIV title game, but they are far from alone. We have three, four other guys who can play (there as well), Lavorato said. Unlike a lot of teams, Sacred Heart Prep is getting to the point where it has enough good players who allow Lavorato and the Gators coaching staff to keep guys from playing both may just be a one-man show, the championship game in San Diego proves they are a true team. Avila said the opposing coach ran his defense solely for the purpose of shutting down Cedeno. It worked, as the Warriors managed only 12 points. But it didnt account for the defensive prowess of the Warriors, who did even better in limiting their opponent to just seven points. It was a challenge for me to see offense and defense. For the most part, guys will start on only one side of the ball and see spot duty on the other side. Theres a good reason to have 11 starters on offense and 11 on defense, Lavorato said. In the fourth quarter, youre not as tired. Against Carmel, after the 5-minute mark of the fourth quarter, we scored four straight touchdowns. My rst two or three years, we couldnt have done that. As you start to get a few more athletes and little more depth, youre able to do it start two separate units]. if I could do it (coach the rest of the team around an outstanding player), Avila said.

BEARCATS
Continued from page 11
To this proverbial fight, the Bearcats bring the baddest wide receiver in the division, probably in the entire league, in All-Leaguer Andrew Ho. I feel that we have the best receiver in the league, hands-down, Scheller said. Ill put him one-onone with anybody, anyone on any team, any league. That said, Hos success will be depend on how well the Bearcats can run the football. Were no different (than any other year), Scheller said. Were going to continue to be run-rst. And the kids know that. Thats how were going to win games and by all means, were going to give the ball to our playmakers. The Bearcats return four of the ve members on their offensive line, including Justin Lee, David Aranda and Kevin Gruber plus, Alex Strathearn, the starting tight end, who Scheller is hoping will make some big plays catching the football. Filling out the offensive line will be Alejandro Rios, who Scheller believes will be able to step right in and fortify things up front. Those guys are really going to make or break this team. Theyre working really hard, Scheller said. Trevor Brill will be the quarterback, and in his rst year at the helm, Scheller said there is no one on the San Mateo team working harder to get himself ready for the

new season. Hes making everyone feel really comfortable about the quarterback position, Scheller said. In a sense, the offense in 2011 will be the Bearcats best defense. In 2010, Ocean Division opponents averaged 37.4 points per game against San Mateo. Last year, part of the defensive problem was that we were on the field a lot, Scheller said. We always stress defense, we always stress tackling, stress hustle thats something that, from the time I got to the program, Ive always stressed. But when youre on the eld all the time, and you go 3-andout most of the time (on offense), that goes down, youre playing on your heels. So we feel that this year, defensively, we will be much improved. San Mateo will feature a lot of two-way players, including Michael Latu at linebacker, Lee, Aranda, on the line, and Ho (plus three returning secondary mates) on the outside. Were not big, Scheller said. Were going to have a lot of guys going both ways, so condition-wise we know we have to be better. With the Lake wide open, the Bearcats know theyll be playing for more than just the W in 2011. The PAL coaches do the best job, in any sport, or doing whats best for the league, Scheller said. And if they felt it was best that we go down, then were going to do it. Do I 100 percent agree with it? No. But, I think we take it as a better opportunity. For me, the goal is to be in the Bay, thats what were trying to shoot for. And we will get there.

Need a C-section? Protection from blood clot urged


WASHINGTON New advice for pregnant women: If youre getting a Csection, special inating boots strapped on your legs may lower the risk of a blood clot. Hospitals already use these compression devices for other major operations, such as hip replacements, and a growing number have begun offering them for at least some of their cesarean deliveries, too. Now guidelines for the nations obstetricians say its time to make the step routine for most C-sections, which account for nearly a third of U.S. births. The new recommendations promise to raise awareness of what is a silent threat not just for pregnant women but for thousands of other people, too: Blood clots in veins that can masquerade as simple leg pain. Called a DVT, for deep vein thrombosis, this kind of clot usually starts in the leg or groin. But it can kill if it moves up to the lungs, where its called a pulmonary embolism. These clots make headlines every few years when seemingly healthy people collapse after long airplane ights or similar prolonged inactivity. Certain surgeries also can trigger a DVT. Earlier this year, tennis star Serena Williams was treated for clots in her lungs discovered after foot surgery and cross-country travel. Obesity, some types of injuries, even some birth control pills can increase the risk, too. A womans risk of a DVT jumps during pregnancy and the six weeks afterward. Thats partly because of slower blood ow from the weight gain, and because mom is less active in the last trimester and during those first few weeks of recovery from childbirth. Its also because pregnancy temporarily changes blood to make it clot more easily. This is a consequence of natures protecting women against the bleeding challenges of childbirth, explains Dr. Andra James of Duke University, who co-authored the new guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Add a C-section and, like any major surgery, it further increases that risk. As many as two of every 1,000 pregnant women will experience a DVT, James says. Fortunately, pregnancyrelated deaths are very rare in this country, but when they happen, those clots are one of the leading reasons. Yet too few people even know the warning signs, she says: Pain or swelling in one leg, especially the calf or thigh. Redness or warmth in one spot on the leg. If the clot has reached the lung, shortness of breath or chest pain. The new guidelines urge obstetricians to closely monitor their patients for DVTs and to check if they have additional factors that would put them at extra risk. Women whove had a DVT earlier in life, or whose close relatives had one or who have certain inherited

Vaccines generally safe,some side effects


By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Vaccines can cause certain side effects but serious ones appear very rare and theres no link with autism and Type 1 diabetes, the Institute of Medicine says in the rst comprehensive safety review in 17 years. The report released Thursday isnt aimed at nervous parents. And the side effects it lists as proven are some that doctors long have known about, such as fever-caused seizures and occasional brain inammation. Instead, the review comes at the request of the governments Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which as the name implies, pays damages to people who are injured by vaccines. Federal law requires this type of independent review as ofcials update side effects on that list to be sure they agree with the latest science. Vaccines are important tools in preventing serious infectious disease across the lifespan, from infancy through adulthood. All health care interventions, however, carry the possibility of risk and vaccines are no exception, said pediatrician and bioethicist Dr. Ellen Wright Clayton of Vanderbilt University, who chaired the institute panel. Still, the report stresses that vaccines generally are safe, and it may help doctors address worries from a small but vocal anti-vaccine movement. Some vaccine-preventable diseases, including measles, are on the rise. I am hopeful that it will allay some peoples concerns, Clayton said. The review echoed numerous other scientific reports that dismiss an autism link. But it found convincing evidence of 14 side effects:

Fever-triggered seizures, which seldom cause long-term consequences, from the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR, vaccine. MMR also can cause a rare form of brain inammation in some people with immune problems. The varicella vaccine against chickenpox sometimes triggers that viral infection, resulting in widespread chickenpox or a painful relative called shingles. It also occasionally can lead to pneumonia, hepatitis or meningitis. Six vaccines MMR and the chickenpox, hepatitis B, meningococcal and tetanuscontaining vaccines can cause severe allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis. Vaccines in general sometimes trigger fainting or a type of shoulder inammation. Theres suggestive evidence but not proof of a few other side effects, including anaphylaxis from the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine and short-term joint pain in some women and children from the MMR vaccine. On the other hand, the report cleared u shots of blame for two long-suspected side effects: Bells palsy and worsening of asthma. That doesnt mean there arent other side effects the review couldnt nd enough evidence to decide about more than 100 other possibilities. Some vaccines are just too new to link to something really rare. Another example: Flu shots have long come with a caution about rare, paralyzing Guillain-Barre syndrome, but Clayton said research hasnt settled if thats a coincidence since the disorder is more common during the winter. The Health Resources and Services Administration, which runs the vaccine compensation program, is reviewing the report but said its too early to predict if it will prompt changes to the injury list.

A major review declares that vaccines overall are safe, although like any kind of health care, certain ones can cause some side effects.

HEALTH/LOCAL
accommodate up to two high-speed rail trains an hour in both directions on its tracks and four trains an hour in both directions if about nine miles of passing tracks are constructed somewhere between San Mateo and San Jose. Initially, the California High-Speed Rail Authority said it wanted to get at least 10 to 12 of its trains into the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco every hour. But the high cost of the project and a lack of consensus on the Peninsula as to how the system should look has caused the rail authority to suspend a study of the full buildout of the system as it begins work on the project in the Central Valley. Designs for the full buildout of the system locally showed a four-track system running mostly on an aerial viaduct, an idea met with great opposition up and down the corridor. Residents in Southern California have also greatly opposed building a similar structure between Los Angeles and Anaheim, according to Kemptons letter. If the project is not completed beyond the Central Valley plans, the state would be left with a segment providing marginal service improvement to 1 million passengers per year whereas shifting some investment into a blended approach at both ends would improve service to 28 million passengers as well as Last year, the cities jointly commissioned Municipal Resource Group, LLC to study further options for sharing police services. According to the analysis, a shared service model was not viable due to limited or nonexistent scal savings, Telford wrote in a staff report. Millbrae has a couple options to consider: Maintain its own department or contact with another agency. One of the issues with keeping its own department is cost. Over the last 10 years, the department has gone from 38.5 full-time equivalent employees to 29.75, Telford wrote. The reduction includes six less police ofcers and two fewer police lieutenants. It is believed that the existing police department stafng conguration will, over an recommendations, published in the September issue of the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. Then there are those compression devices, which slip over each leg and regularly inate and deate, sort of like a massage, to help blood ow more briskly. The obstetricians group acknowledges that those in the Valley, Kempton wrote in the letter. A full buildout locally will cost in excess of $6 billion to complete while simply electrifying the Caltrain corridor to accommodate high-speed trains is estimated to cost about $1 billion. The blended rail idea has gained steam since the three lawmakers rst proposed the idea back in April. Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani, DLivingston, who wrote the language in Proposition 1A, a voter-approved $9 billion bond measure that passed in 2008, told the Daily Journal yesterday that getting highspeed trains from Bakerseld to Gilroy and then to San Francisco on Caltrains right-ofway would be a good sign for private investors to prove the state is serious about building the project. We need to take advantage of existing infrastructure, Galgiani said. The segment from Bakerseld to San Francisco can be up and running, providing service while the rest of the system is being built. She said a blended approach would allow the authority to build up its ridership and then gauge at a later time whether the full buildout would be necessary. Caltrains goal is to modernize and electrify extended period of time, result in signicant organizational, operational and scal problems for the city, Telford wrote. Telford expressed a number of concerns about the current department like increased overtime and 16-hour shifts as a result of the limited staff; limited ability to follow up on unsolved cases and address community crime trends; difculty in scheduling training; challenges in retaining and attracting employees; and limited ability for community outreach. Should the city want to maintain its own department, Telford suggested increasing stafng levels by 2.25 full-time equivalent employees a cost of $410,000 annually. Meeting that will require cuts to other city departments. Alternatively, the city could partner with or there havent been large studies with C-sections to prove how much difference the gadgets could make. But it decided to recommend them anyway because in other types of surgery, the devices can cut the clot risk by twothirds, James says. The guidelines recommend strapping them on before the C-section begins, unless theres no time before an emergency operation or the woman is taking anti-clotting medication. Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York began using the devices for C-sections a few years ago, and deputy chief medical ofcer Dr. Erin DuPree says they add $14 to the cost

its system and is hoping to get the rail authority to foot much of the bill. Limiting high-speed rail to the Caltrain corridor could save taxpayers billions in construction costs and greatly limit the need for property takings through eminent domain. There is a growing chorus that the only way that makes sense for the project to move forward is to have high-speed trains share the corridor with Caltrain, Simitian said. The conversation will never be constructive if there are not sensible parameters. Simitian called the Peer Review Groups comments particularly compelling given the professional expertise and experience of the groups membership. Assembly Bill 3034 established the Peer Review Group to evaluate the High-Speed Rail Authoritys funding plans and prepare its independent judgment as to the feasibility and the reasonableness of it plans. The rail authority plans to build a system that will take passengers between San Francisco and Los Angeles in about 2 hours and 40 minutes.

to the end points, however, will require substantial debate and discussion, Gordon said yesterday. Since much of the federal investment into high-speed rail comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, much of the funds to get the projects under way will have to be committed toward shovel-ready projects by the end of this federal scal year in September 2012, Kempton told the Daily Journal yesterday. Kempton is also chief executive ofcer of the Orange County Transportation Authority. There is a quick time frame to make use of the funds but it doesnt mean all of the money has to go to the Central Valley, Kempton said.

Its an easy thing to do that really does not cause harm and could potentially help, she says. James stresses that leg compression shouldnt lull a woman into thinking she can rest in bed rather than push herself to walk and a new mom should remain alert to symptoms when she goes home because half of pregnancy-related DVTs occur in those weeks after childbirth.

Teen vaccination against cervical cancer lagging


By Mike Stobbe
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

U.N.warns of bird flu resurgence


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA Only about half of the teenage girls in the U.S. have rolled up their sleeves for a controversial vaccine against cervical cancer a rate well below those for two other vaccinations aimed at adolescents. The vaccine hit the market in 2006. By last year, just 49 percent of girls had gotten at least the rst of the recommended three shots for human papilloma virus, or HPV, a sexuallytransmitted bug that can cause cervical cancer and genital warts. Only a third had gotten all three doses, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday. In contrast, the CDC said about two-thirds of teens had gotten the recommended shot for one type of bacterial meningitis and a shot for meningitis and tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough. Granted, it can take many years for a new vaccine to catch on and reach the 90 percent and above range for many longstanding childhood vaccines. But use of HPV vaccine has been very disappointing compared to other newer vaccines, said the CDCs Dr. Melinda Wharton. If we dont do a much better job, were leaving another generation vulnerable to cervical cancer later in life, said Wharton. Why arent more girls getting HPV shots? The vaccine can be very expensive, and it can be a bit of a hassle. It takes three visits to the doctor over six months. But sex no doubt has something to do with it, experts said. Girls are supposed to start the series when they are 11 or 12 before most girls become sexually active. The vaccine only works if a girl is vaccinated before shes rst exposed to the virus. But some parents may misunderstand, thinking their daughters dont need it at such a young age because they arent sexually active. Others may believe that it would require a discussion about sex and sexuality a talk they may not feel ready to have, some experts said. The government needs to be more aggressive about changing those perceptions with a major education campaign, Jeff Levi, executive director of the Trust for Americas Health, a Washington, D.C.-based research group, said in a statement. Millions of Americans women and men become infected with HPV each year, though most show no symptoms and clear the virus on their own. But some strains persist and can cause genital warts and cancer. About 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, and about 4,000 die from it, according to CDC statistics. The new study was based on a 2010 telephone survey of the parents of more than 19,000 adolescents ages 13 to 17, who allowed researchers to check their kids vaccination records. Rhode Island and Washington had the highest HPV vaccination rates, both around 70 percent for at least one shot. Idaho had the lowest rates, at about 29 percent. The study was published online in a CDC publication, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

ROME The United Nations warned Monday of a possible resurgence of the deadly bird u virus, saying wild bird migrations had brought it back to previously virus-free countries and that a mutant strain was spreading in Asia. A mutant strain of H5N1, which can apparently sidestep defenses of existing vaccines, is spreading in China and Vietnam, Tthe U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said in a statement Monday. It urged greater surveillance to ensure that any outbreaks are contained. Last week, the World Health Organization reported that a 6-year-old Cambodian girl had died Aug. 14 from bird u, the eighth person to die from H5N1 avian influenza this year in Cambodia. Vietnam suspended its springtime poultry vaccination this year, FAO said. Most of the northern and central parts of the country where the virus is endemic have been invaded by the new strain. Elsewhere, FAO says bird migrations over the past two years have brought H5N1 to countries that had been virusfree for several years, including Israel, the Palestinian territories, Bulgaria, Romania, Nepal and Mongolia. Wild birds may introduce the virus, but peoples actions in poultry production and marketing spread it, said FAOs chief veterinary office Juan Lubroth in urging greater preparedness and surveillance. WHO says globally there have been

331 human deaths from 565 conrmed bird u cases since 2003 when it was rst detected. The virus was eliminated from most of the 63 countries infected at its peak in 2006, but it remained endemic in six countries: Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. The number of outbreaks in poultry and wild bird populations shrank from a high of 4000 to 302 in mid-2008, but outbreaks have risen progressively since, with almost 800 cases reported in 20102011, FAO said. The general departure from the progressive decline in 2004-2008 could mean that there will be a are-up of H5N1 this fall and winter, with people unexpectedly nding the virus in their backyard, Lubroth said in a statement.

An impeccableSense and Sensibility


By Keith Kreitman
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

Although the plot of the mannered novel, Sense and Sensibility may seem trite to modern audiences, some commentators look upon this work, rst written in 1795 by a 19-year-old Jane Austin, as revolutionary in that it is the rst stirrings of womens lib in the Regency Period of England, when a womans social standing and economic status depended upon marriage. It contains many of the elements of novels of that time, the injustice and cruelty of the class structure, the virtuous women, the honorable men, the cads and the gossipy ladies. In this case, the virtuous women are the Dashwood sisters, Elinor (Jennifer Le Blanc) of common sense and Marianne (Katie Febal), of romantic notions and emotional sensibilities. After the death of their father, they had come upon hard economic times and nd shelter on the estate of a wealthy relative, where they encounter the gossipy Aunt Jennings (Stacy Ross). The plot revolves around the contrast between the two. Marianne is the more attractive, in beauty, musical talent, frankness and the capacity to love deeply. But it is the common-sensed Elinor who rst nds love with Edward Ferrars (Thomas Gorrebeeck). He is frustrated because of his familys determination he become successful and marry into a higher class and is complicated in his relationship with childhood friend, Lucy Steele (Lucy Littlewood). Marianne falls hard for the local John Willoughby (Michael Scott Lean) and is distraught and becomes ill when that relationship is ruptured. Entering the picture, also, is the elderly, gentlemanly, distinguished and sensible Col. Christopher Brandon (Mark Anderson Phillips). Given, it is almost impossible to do entire justice in reducing a novel of hundreds of pages into a few hours on the stage, the playwrights Parsley and Graham did an admirable job in preserving the key

dramatic elements of the novel. As could be expected, director Robert Kelley brings it to life with authenticity in manners, dialogue and beautiful stage settings (by Joe Ragey) and costuming (by Fumiko Bielefeldt). Needing to cover four locations from the novel, the scene changes are cleverly manipulated by servants Alexander Lenarsky, Emily Ota and Jeremy Ryan. The cast is outstanding. Each member has been carefully cast and his or her mannered English dialects of the period are impeccable. Again, TheatreWorks veterans Mark Anderson demonstrates his versatility as one of the premiere male talents in the Bay Area and Thomas Gorrebeeck continues to demonstrate he will soon join that celebrated company of performers. Another winner for TheatreWorks. and Assembly Speaker John Perez, DLos Angeles, that has erupted into a debate about the Legislatures public records policy, which lawmakers approved in 1975 and has consistently been used to deny access to records. The lawmaker claims his budget was slashed because he was the only Democrat to vote against the state budget. His staff now faces a six-week layoff this fall. Perez says the lawmaker was overspending. The rules committee initially refused a request by Portantino to release lawmakers budgets for this year as part of an effort to refute Perezs claims, but it released some current spending gures Friday. Still, those documents obscure the spending for individual lawmakers, as hundreds of thousands of dollars in staff expenses continue to be listed in the budgets for committees members sit on. Theres nothing hidden about that, if you are a chair of a committee you have an allocation for the committee and an allocation from your district and your Capitol office, Skinner said in an interview after the committee vote. In most cases the majority of expenditures on a committee do relate lyptus tree on the passenger side. Walker was seriously injured and passenger White was pronounced dead at the scene. During the rst trial, Walkers blood alcohol content was said to be .20. Jurors returned a guilty verdict of felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and intoxication. The panel rst split 7 to 5 in favor of acquittal before ultimately hanging 9 to 3 in favor of guilt. Defense attorney Geoff Carr previously said the jurys rst leaning toward not guilty shows a retrial is a gamble for the prosecution even though his client is already assured 10 years.

to the work of the committee. The budget documents released last week include spending gures that conict with previously released staff salary lists. For example, they show Portantino with the highest spending on salaries of any assemblymember so far this year, far above even powerful lawmakers who hold positions of authority, such as Perez. Portantino appeared at a news conference Monday with California Common Sense, a research group led by students at Stanford University that believes state government is overspending. Dakin Sloss, a senior on leave this year, said he spent the weekend comparing the conicting data released by the Assembly. He said millions of dollars in legislative salaries are not included in members spending, including at least 40 of the 68 listed chiefs of staff who are categorized as working for committees, including in Portantinos ofce. There are signicant inconsistencies between how the rules committee reports expenditures and payroll, Sloss said. This suggests that something odd and peculiar is going on in terms of the data that was released Friday. White himself gambled by opting for trial rather than settling it for a little more than 12 years in prison. Whites choice spurred prosecutors to pursue the murder charge. Seeking a murder conviction in a vehicle-related death is rare but prosecutors cited Walkers history which includes two prior convictions of driving while intoxicated in San Mateo County. Walker was also awaiting prosecution for wrecking a rental car while intoxicated during a Wisconsin business trip. Walker remains in custody in lieu of $2 million bail.

Republicans backing the resolution, except for Assemblyman Tony Mendoza, D-Artesia, who also supported it. Portantinos proposal would require the committee to set budgets for lawmakers and committees more equitably and consider them in a public meeting. Ofcials would also be required to publish quarterly spending updates. All HR 20 does is say, Open the books, Portantino said of his resolution. Its not a radical concept. This is a vote for transparency and sunshine or this is a vote for delay and shelving. But lawmakers on the committee opted to wait for a review by the committees chairwoman, Nancy Skinner, DBerkeley, who was appointed this month to head a task force to review the Assemblys disclosure policies. Skinner said she will report back by January. Portantinos proposal is part of a broader feud between the assemblyman

The course you set for yourself during the next year might not have obvious advantages, but you mustnt let that deflate your enthusiasm and deter you. As long as you know where youre headed, stay on course.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- In order to be properly and fairly compensated for your work, you may have to champion your own cause. Dont allow someone who has no idea of what you do to set your pay scale. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Those in your charge must be made to realize there are reasons for rules and order and that these must be obeyed. Make it

clear that unless things are legit, everyone will suffer. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you attempt to even up the score with someone who has wronged you, chances are you will incur even more complications. Instead of nursing a grudge, forgive and forget. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Many times we can unwittingly ignore the deserving while catering to someone who has wronged us. This could be the case for you currently, so take care not to do so. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- When there are bigger goals to be reached, wasting time and effort on something that will give you merely nominal gratification is wasteful. Define your desires and aim for the best. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If the persons with

whom you associate find you difficult to please, they are apt to make a rapid exit. Be sure to state your case succinctly and fearlessly. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- When having to work with extremely limited resources, play everything close to the vest. If you dont, you could easily get into trouble trying to bluff your way through it all. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Unless your allies aims are in harmony with yours, what you attempt to do together will fizzle. Everybody must be working off the same game plan in order to be effective. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- In order to be a bit easier on yourself than usual, you should delegate some work responsibilities to your associates. Unless you do so, the chances of everything getting done

are slim. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you try to apply a bit of pressure on someone who is indebted to you, this person may disappear rather than comply. He or she isnt ever likely to reciprocate your good turn. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Unless the dispersing of family funds is handled with consideration for all parties, it could become a sticky issue within the household for some time. Be fair about the division. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Co-workers are apt to emulate your behavior, so if you establish a poor example, nothing is likely to get done properly or even be finished.
